You can't.

The Diablo characters are already licensed for appearance in games. They actually don't, but they are licensed.

Nobody wants to start buying a tcg/CCG.

Everybody wants to sell one.

I would start over on your idea.

Hi Shannon,

Sadly a lot of people will jump in here and try to crush your hopes and dreams rather quickly. Just remember that you need to start off by creating a game that you will love to play. Mainly because you will be play testing it forever.

Geosphere is right by saying, to try to sell a card game with Blizzard characters can not happen without their permission, so focus on using your own characters and creating a great back story.

Also Mat628 has some merit when he is saying nobody wants a TCG, because when I started reading the forums I realized that trading card games and collector card games are a tough sell that few are willing to buy anymore. It seems most people are enjoying the transfer to LCG(living card games) and Deckbuilders. I would suggest to look into both of those.

If you are still interested in just knowing about printing, try printing a small run first and see if your local store will carry it. You can print it reasonably cheap on makeplayingcards.com or search playing card printing on google.

Don't give up but always take advice and research their ideas.

Good luck.

-Ian
